Fire Devastates Jersey Boardwalk

(AURN) -- A raging fire engulfed much of the iconic Jersey shore boardwalk that had just been rebuilt after Superstorm Sandy, but a last-ditch effort to halt its spread by ripping out boards that had yet to burn succeeded in saving the rest of it.

Wind spread the  fire that devoured eight blocks of boardwalk — four each in Seaside Park and Seaside Heights — and destroyed dozens of boardwalk businesses and caused millions in damages to the economic mainstay of the twin tourist spots.

At least 20 buildings have been destroyed and the boardwalk itself has almost entirely disappeared.  Fortunately, no fatalities have been reported. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie reacts.
